I recently installed the Value Study series in the lobby of the MCAD MFA building for a week and shot new documentation of the project. You can find those images on this site now. This project is continuing – I expect to make five curtain pieces in total.

Portrait at Everwood Farmstead

I just had the most lovely week at Everwood Farmstead! If you’re an artist looking to get away and enjoy beautiful rural scenery (see below), check it out. The owners, Chris and Bill, were so welcoming, and the caretakers, Lisa and Adam were a great support.


I was able to work on a new series of wall-based sculptures, some watercolors, and my walking book.


An extra bonus was all the wildlife! I saw cranes, and hummingbirds, deer, chickens, baby robins, and this one black squirrel who ate all the mushrooms in the yard!
